Hot Trailer: ‘Fireflies In The Garden’

Fireflies in the Garden premiered at the 2008 Berlin International Film Festival and screened in a few overseas territories but never found a U.S. distributor — until last week, when it was revealed that the Dennis Lee drama will be shown in select cities Oct. 14. Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds star with Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, and Carrie-Anne Moss. Here’s the trailer. If you were a studio boss with the chance to pick it up, would you? Because for three years, they apparently all said no.

Julia Roberts-Ryan Reynolds Family Drama ‘Fireflies’ Will Finally Have U.S. Bow

By | Thursday August 25, 2011 @ 9:13pm PDT

UPDATE: The feature film Fireflies in the Garden was shot in 2007 and had been languishing. But today producers Vanessa Coifman, Marco Weber, and Sukee Chew said they’ll finally release the film domestically. Written and directed by Dennis Lee, the semi-autobiographical R-rated Fireflies will be shown on Oct. 14 in New York, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco. No name of the distributor, however. The film initially bowed at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2008 from Senator Entertainment and was released in a handful of foreign territories. But with stars like Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds joining Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson, and Carrie-Anne Moss, the producers obviously are hoping it will find a U.S. audience.
